  3. Antiwar protests convinced U.S. leaders that voters did not

    support aggressive foreign policy.

    Explanation:

    The opposites and conflicts created by the rivalry of the superpowers, in the early 1970s, resulted in an awareness of the necessity of US-Soviet global political cooperation based on respect for each other's interests (the Kissinger Doctrine). The US initiated a policy of détente, and in 1972, for the first time, a US president (R. M. Nixon) visited Moscow, when agreements were signed on limiting strategic arms and on the Soviet purchase of American grain. The harmonization of the global political activity of the superpower on the basis of respect for national interests and the agreed boundaries of (geo) political action (the so-called Sonnenfeldt Doctrine of 1976) is an attempt to maintain a consensual block bipolarity.

The reasons were not only based the military results by that time (1945-1948) but by the notion that socialism was a new and more efficient way of settling issues in the European and capitalist world, thereby causing the empathy from some neighbour states and also expanding with the introduction of "puppet states" loyal to the Soviet Union.
